Hormesis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Hormesis (from Greek hórmēsis "rapid motion, eagerness," from ancient Greek hormáein "to set in motion, impel, urge on") is the term for generally favorable biological responses to low exposures to... EN.WIKIPEDIA.ORG LikeLike · · Share
Chris Busby A few relevant things. First, the evidence is that there is an inducible protective respone to increased levels of radiation. This is what these people call hormesis. So that a small increase of radiation dose to the cell increases the effectiveness of DNA repair. But this is not a good thing in capital letters , any more than suntanning as a protective response to UV is a good thing. More people get skin cancer in areas of high UV (Australia) despite their sun tans. The point is that increased cell repair status means more cell turnover and more rapid cell clone ageing. So your hormesisised cells may not pass on DNA damage but they age more quickly. You die younger, your orgains fail soones and cancer increases due to cell ageing. Second, the hormesis graph is anyway an artifact, because we do not have a zero dose point on the scale. So since the dose response is biphasic (as Burlakova has shown) and as I argue, (that is up down trhen up again), the down bit before it goes up can be interpreted as hormesis, but it is not really hormesis since the straight line starts not at the natural background position on the y axis but at the point 0,0. Third, most important, these effects are all found at low cell doses around 10 mSv. Such doses are all whole body doses in the experiments that are cited. But for internal expoures to Uranium alpha Plutonium alpha, or Sr-90 bound to DNA the cell doses are in the order of 500mSv or more, so the arguments about hormesis become academic.

starlight: Perfect and then some! Dana is burning through the cash on some top notch state of the art tech and for those who can afford to, every pound is cherished and used in this endeavour. Presentation is vital and he’s come so far!

starlight: Posting the links in the chat now you have made the thread is perhaps a mistake, I say this in all good faith and only because eventually the chat will be erased by new chat posts which, though slow, require space of their own. Best wishes for 2019!

millie: Hi, Starlight. No problem. I posted here because the thread is not visible to the outside world, just members apparently. I post in enough other places it's not a big deal. Thanks for the correction, and Happy New Year!

starlight: Are you experiencing difficulties building a thread? For certain things such as expanding pictures one has to log in but building a thread is still possible I’m sure. Don’t give up just yet!

starlight: Linking to YouTube here will result in slower page redraws over time on a thread as pages grow, so that’s frustrating! Linking to multiple vids in a single

starlight: post will result in slow page redraw, cumbersome. So don’t try to post Dana’s entire output retrospectively but stuff you have a comment on .... might be a good balance? It’s tricky! I have just one thread and go there to post my contribution over time.

starlight: I chose pictures over YouTube links as a way to contribute and make it personal but that’s just me! Then one has to log in to expand my offering...ho hum! We have trolls who make this our reality I’m afraid!
